Imagine the Ryder Cup matches being played in Washington, D.C.
You’ll have to wait nearly two decades but it will happen in 2036 when Congressional Country Club will host the matches, the PGA of America announced Tuesday.
Congressional, a longtime host of USGA events, will also host the 2031 PGA Championship as well as several other PGA-related championships in the coming years.
In awarding the 2036 Ryder Cup to Congressional, the PGA of America has now set the venues for the next five times the event is to be held in the United States.
Whistling Straits will host the Ryder Cup in 2020, Bethpage Black is the 2024 host, Hazeltine National will become the first two-time host in 2028, the Olympic Club in San Francisco is the 2032 site and Congressional will follow in 2036.
Congressional hosted the 1976 PGA Championship won by Dave Stockton and U.S. Opens won by Rory McIlroy (2011), Ernie Els (1997) and Ken Venturi (1964).
